This is the best book on lactose intolerance -- what it is, how and why it exists, how to live with it -- available. Complete and detailed, yet utterly reader-friendly even for non-scientists. I learned more useful information from this book than from months of visits with doctors after I learned I had this condition. Very highly recommended to LI sufferers and those who live with them.

Editorial Review

*****
Bold ideas combined with down-to-earth characters mark this collection from one of the unsung innovators of the sf short story. Set in both the near and far reaches of time and space, Steve Carper's stories defy conventional classification. Read them as part science fiction, part fantasy, part mainstream and slipstream. They gambol easily among the classic themes of the field from dinosaurs to space travel to wish-giving witches, transforming each into something new, unexpected, and delightful in a style so vivid that it has been called "worddrunk".
Imbibe deeply.This volume collects all of Carper s major works for the first time, and adds a story available nowhere else. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Bold, eclectic and innovative!
I'll certainly agree with the marketing wonks that prepared the cover blurbs for Steven Carper's "Tyrannosaur Faire". This collection of short stories is innovative, to say the least, and, just as the editors suggested, they defy conventional classification.

Sci-fi? Perhaps!

Fantasy? To a certain extent!

Mainstream? Sometimes! But one of the stories, "Goggle a Frog, Kiss a Prince", is so far away from mainstream, it's actually a parody or a spoof of cyberpunk, a genre which is generally thought to be a few miles off the usual trodden literary path.

Let's just say that Steve Carper, a graduate of the fiction writing classes offered by Hugo and Nebula Award winner Nancy Kress, is a clever and entertaining writer whose fertile imagination flits from topic to topic like a punch-drunk moth lost in a fireworks display - dinosaurs working a country fair ("One Long Summer Night Over at the Tyrannosaur Faire"), relativistic space travel ("Forever, With Diamond"), wish-giving witches and the perils of getting what you wish for ("The Taste of Worms"), a timely tale of a delightfully novel cure for a pandemic flu virus ("A Kiss Isn't Just a Kiss"), a curious story that blends Jewish and Chinese mysticism ("Pity the Poor Dybbuk") and even a heart-warming futuristic vision of the venerable institution of marriage ("Grafts on the Memory Tree"). Nobody would ever say that Steven Carper's short stories are stuck in a plot rut!

But, the quality is far from uniform. Charles Dickens would almost certainly suggest that "Tyrannosaur Faire" is a combination of the best of stories and the worst of stories!Most notably, the moral or point of the tale which provided the title for the entire collection escaped me completely. On the other hand, I'm absolutely thrilled to say that "Forever, With Diamond" struck me as perhaps the finest, most exciting and most innovative short sci-fi story that I've ever been privileged to read. (And that's mighty high praise indeed since I'm including the very gods of sci-fi writing such as Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, RA Heinlein) The amount of science that Steve Carper managed to stuff into this story and still keep it sensible is almost breathtaking - relativistic space travel on an asteroid, teleportation, quantum nanotechnology, virtual reality, time dilation, molecular genetics and the deceleration of the aging process, polymer based artificial organ replacements and more. And, if you can believe it, all of this was placed into the context of an obsessive love story. Now, that's some piece of brilliant writing!

A grudging one-star deduction for the couple of stories that didn't quite make the grade reduced a wonderful five star reading reverie to a mere four star anthology well worth your time and effort. Now that ain't too bad, is it?

5-0 out of 5 stars Fair faire
This is a collection of stories for mature people, not youngsters.There are romantic stories, the scary story, the demon story, and one of the best, the amusing plague story.I love the author's use of words in many of these stories.They twist and turn around in my mind, and really make me think. Some of the images lingered in my mind for a long time, especially the story of the tortured woman.I really liked that a kiss could be the answer to a health problem.Don't miss this book! ...

In a clearly-written, no-nonsense guide, the authors provide parents with the information they need to identify, understand, and deal with the growing problem of teenage drug and alcohol abuse. As it explores the many reasons why kids start using drugs, as well as how a parent's denial of the situation greatly contributes to it, the book offers step-by-step advice on how to confront the problem and promote a drug-free home environment. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for parents
Parents need to be aware of the drug filled world we live in, this book is a real eye opener for parents and should be a MUST READ for anyone with children over the age of 10. It can help parents face reality and get helpfor their children and themselves.The section on RED FLAG BEHAVIOR isespecially useful. I am the parent of a substance abuser and I wish I hadthe information in this book when he was 12.... I highly reccommend thisbook. ... Read more

There are used copies available for basically the price of shipping? BUY THIS BOOK NOW.

Seriously. It's one of only two places you can find the Garfield noir parody, "Babes and Bullets," by Ron Tuthill, co-written by none other than Jim Davis himself. Jonesing for Fran Leibowitz and waiting on her long-awaited book? Check out "In Hot Pursuit." Check out S.J. Perelman's insanely great "Farewell, My Lovely Appetizer."

That's one of the real prizes here; the other two are "Match Wits with Inspector Ford," a Woody Allen short story which needs to be read out loud, as there is at least one point in it will cause you to collapse in peals of hysterical laughter. And another is a short story which is, to the best of my knowledge, not available anywhere else--John Harris' "Monastic Mayhem: An Echo of Eco," a superbly realized parody of none other than "The Name of the Rose."

Again, the second issue of Black Gate has a whole pile of stuff.

This includes perhaps the best magazine article I can remember seeing, where Rich Horton takes a look at interesting or important anthologies in the fantasy genre, and fantasy short fiction in general in a historical overview.This is peppered throughout with pictures of book covers, and magazines, and is overall really interesting, and I wish I had have seen this when it came out.Close to worth the price of the mag for that alone.

Lots on gaming, including a fairly extensive look at Orcs, particularly as player character, possibilities.Also, apparently there is a Gamma World setting White Wolf used to produce, speaking of blasts from the past.

In comics, the focus is on Alan Moore and ABC, which are highly recommended.Certainly have to agree with that.Top 10 is great, Tom Strong is a lot of fun, Promethea is good even if it descends into a certain level of esoteric tedium towards the end, etc.He talks about Miracleman, Superman, and other work done by Moore, too.

Also a lengthy interview with Gene Wolfe, and the same comic strips as the last issue return, and a length kid's book section.

Other reviews include the House on the Borderland, and a Jo Walton Arthurianesque book that I would like to get to sometime, and a George R. R. Martin fantasy novel in his fat fantasy series.992 pages!(How you can convince me to read it, reviewer, is to put out a version half that size.)One that does sound more fun is John M. Ford's gangster elves, Chicago style.(You dirty pointy-eared rat?

The editorial again stresses adventure fantasy is what they are doing, of whatever kind.There is indeed a broad range, from second world to world war settings, hispanic gangster kids, vampires, Mayans and more.Even venturing into horror, too.Whether time-knitting grannies are adventure stories is maybe debatable, but there are no poor tales here, at least.All 3 or higher.

If the non-fiction content continues in this vein it will always be a significant rating advantage over most other competitors.

Looking at the fiction table of contents I didn't expect this issue to match up to the first in that department.One star-studded lineup, one not, so this issue is probably perhaps more of an indication of what is likely to be found per issue than the more stacked first production.

So, an average of 3.45 compare to 3.60 for the first is still rather good when putting together adventure fantasy stories.No complaints here if it stays around that level, approximately, as that would put it on par, for its type, with the major magazines as far as story scores go, in general.

A couple of them have been reprinted elsewhere it seems (Year's Best Fantasy 2, Infinity Plus) and on the reprint front, the classic O'Neill has chosen for this issue is Edmond Hamilton's 'The Monster-God of Malmurth'.Interestingly, Eric Flint also chose this for a more recent issue of Jim Baen's Universe.Again, the reprint story has 'ads' in the sense of pictures of other books by the author - did you know Hamilton had a vampire and horror stories collection, for instance?I didn't.So, very usefully done again.

The cover is even cool, and is a dragon for the second time in a row.Rather than a smug, perched lizard, this time we have a beast in full Flame-On mode.It isn't till you flip to the back that you realise the cover picture wraps around and the scaly one is flambeing a pirate ship.

With the extensive and broad non-fiction content (which is unmatched by any major magazine, barring perhaps Interzone) that puts this magazine into 4.5 score territory.
